2007 Nissan Quest - Trans Jumps

Transmission jumps into first gear from parking gear

What do you mean by “jumps”?

Are you saying your automatic transmission jumps out of Park into Drive? Have it towed to a transmission shop.

If you mean the car lurches forward unexpectedly & with a lot of force when shifting from D to 1, that could be indicative of too high idle rpm. Does the engine seem to be racing a little in idle?
